Lee Shulman called it “pedagogical amnesia,” a condition characterized by the inability to recall the results of our experiences teaching a course. In this workshop, you will learn what materials to collect and what prompts to use to document your teaching, which will help you next time you teach a course, as well as help you prepare for reviews. With Joshua Potter, CTE and Doug Ward, CTE/Journalism and Mass Communications.
